New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday issued summons to former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi in money laundering case.”Summons were issued last week to Modi through his attorney, who appeared before us for an adjudicatory hearing,” an ED source said. According to the source, Modi has been asked to appear in three weeks. Modi has been asked by ED to explain the charges against him.
Last week, the agency had recorded the statement of former BCCI chief N Shrinivasan. The case relates to a 2008 deal between World Sports Group (WSG) and Multi Screen Media (MSM) for television rights of Indian Premier League (IPL) worth Rs 425 crore. High-level Enforcement Directorate sources had said apart from these cases, two other instances of suspected contravention of foreign exchange laws and hawala transactions are also being investigated by the central probe agency and these include investigations on the role of Modi.
